About Shea Butter
Shea butter is nothing but a healthy, organic fat that is extracted from the nuts of the shea tree. It remains solid under warm temperatures and is off-white or ivory in color. Native to West Africa, most of the shea butter that is bought by cosmetic companies come from this region only.
Although this has been used as a cosmetic ingredient for centuries, it gained popularity in India quite late. Shea butter is highly concentrated with vitamins and fatty acids that make its texture easy-to-spread. And as far as its effect on the skin is concerned, it makes your skin butter soft and hydrated for more than 24 hours.

Benefits Of Using Shea Butter
- Prevents skin inflammation: Shea butter has got anti-inflammatory properties. So, when you apply it to your skin, it triggers the cytokines and other inflammatory cells and manages to slow down their production. This minimizes irritation caused by different environmental factors such as – dry weather during winter, as well as inflammatory skin problems such as eczema.
- Increases collagen production: Shea butter contains triterpenes which are chemical compounds that deactivate the destruction of collagen fibers. However, do not expect shea butter to completely fade away the fine lines; expect it to minimize them.

But shea butter is that one organic moisturizer that doesn’t trigger acne, and instead, helps prevent it. The unique composition of different fats that is present in shea butter helps clear your skin of excess oil, without messing up the overall moisture content.
